The chemical symbol for gold is Au, from the Latin word aurum, meaning gold. Both gold and silver, as “precious metals” have long been considered a good storehouse of wealth. Gold weight is measured in the Troy system with just over 31 grams to the ounce. Pure gold is 24 karat (or carat) and 10 karat gold is just under 42 percent pure. Expressed as a decimal, gold purity ranges from 0 to 1 and millesimal fineness of .9999 is just about as good as it gets. Today’s gold markets trade around the clock, though in September 1919, the Daily Gold Fixing began in London, England and still continues today to provide a daily benchmark to the industry.


The chemical symbol Ag comes from the Latin word argentum and for thousands of years silver has been highly valued for its uses and also as a storehouse of wealth, not to even mention, as a basis for various monetary systems. The luster of silver is surpassed only by gold, and it is often added to, or alloyed with gold to provide additional strength.
